About the Play:

Bunny is a full-length drama by Hannah Moscovitch. A professor of Victorian literature has a long and complicated relationship with the opposite sex, and with sex, in general. As she details her journey, we meet some of her partners in life and love, marvelling at the search for her moral center as much as the relationships she forges along the way. Complicated, funny, and deeply moving, Bunny is a play about repressive social convention, personal inhibition and desire unleashed.

Bunny is a dive into a woman's personal history and relationship to sex from high school age, into her late thirties. Sorrel grew up with professor parents, where carob was dessert, reading passages of Canadian poetry aloud was entertainment, and canoeing was the only sport encouraged. No one really noticed the studious Sorrel until she turned seventeen, when late puberty suddenly transformed her into a hot dork. Boys wanted her and girls loathed her, and all at once Sorrel discovered the joys of sexuality and the pain of social rejection. Sorrel enters college as a self-proclaimed loser with no female friends, but then she meets Maggie. Maggie's unwavering friendship helps her shed her inhibitions and become more truly herself. The two women grow older, but when Maggie is diagnosed with cancer, Sorrel must choose between raw feeling and devotion. From one of Canada's boldest playwrights comes an intimate look into the sexual life of a young woman as she struggles with the power of her desires. It's a romance. It's sexy. Not always at the same time.

Bunny premiered in 2016 at The Stratford Festival's Studio Theatre in Stratford, Ontario. After rave reviews, the production was moved to the Tarragon Theatre in Toronto.

What people say:

"This story of desire, morality and connection is hard not to fall in love with." — The Toronto Star

"If women's sexuality is typically played out in romantic canopy beds or pitch-black bedrooms, Moscovitch places it unabashedly under flickering fluorescent lights in a bar bathroom." — Stratford Beacon Herald

"...something rare: good, frank theatre about sex, erotic without being exploitative." — National Post

"...human sexuality is a complex thing, often shrouded in secrecy and shame as well as pleasure – all things that crop up with frank honesty in Hannah Moscovitch's stunning play Bunny." — NOW Magazine
